Dean Richards interviews Fred Winston, WGN-AM 02/24/02

Fred Winston is one of Chicago radio's all-time greatest personalities. He began his career on Chicago radio as an afternoon DJ spinning the hits on WLS-AM in 1971. After almost six years there, he started his trek all across the Chicago radio dial, with stops at WMAQ-AM, WFYR-FM, WCFL-AM, back to WLS-AM, WJMK-FM, WLUP-FM, WPNT-FM, WXXY-FM, WJMK-FM, WJMK-HD2, WGN-AM, and WLS-FM.

On the morning of February 24, 2002, Winston came in to the WGN-AM showcase studios to sit down with another Chicago media legend, Dean Richards. Both Winston and Richards had previously worked together at WFYR-FM. Winston talked about his incredible Chicago radio career with Richards for nearly an hour. Other subjects covered included Winston's health and traditional Chinese medicine. Special guests included Winston's one-time newsman Lyle Dean and former traffic reporter "Major Tom" Johnson.
